When you own a business or manage one, it’s crucial to have efficient, affordable ways to store inventory and supplies, whether it’s to grow your business or adapt to changes in the market, like the many caused by the pandemic.

Renting storage containers to keep at your business eliminates the cost and hassles of sending your staff to offsite storage facilities. Steel containers with roll up doors make storing and retrieving items faster and easier. Auto repair shops and other businesses that need easy access throughout the workday to secure storage for tools, parts, equipment or supplies find renting shipping containers to be the best solution for their business storage needs.Storage has got your back.

Renting portable offices gives your business more workspace, breakrooms, pop up stores, security booths and more, without the cost and red tape associated with constructing building additions. Plus, a steel storage container fits neatly into one parking space and provides much stronger security than Pods and way more convenience than self-storage units.

If you have a specific need, we can modify shipping containers to build whatever you need to grow your business. Whether it’s a portable workspace to run your business, like a pop-up container bar, or a durable facility for scientific research, like a container laboratory, or even a container gym, our unrivaled fabrication facility and modification experts got you covered. Our full-time, in-house staff of certified welders, engineers, electricians, carpenters and painters have over 500 years combined experience modifying thousands of container projects for just about any business use you can imagine.


Offsite storage alternatives cause a mess of hassles and headaches. Expanding office space and storage capacity at your location saves time, money and hassle of making multiple trips offsite.
We offer more choice in security, size and features in steel Conex boxes or ISO shipping containers than a public storage unit or Pod for less cost and far greater service.
We offer flexible, month-to-month rental agreements and prorate by the day after your first 28-day billing cycle.
With us, you get a dedicated account manager you can rely on, so you can focus on running your business than waste time with a different person every time you call that doesn’t know or care as much.
While other companies may have some staff for modifying containers, most outsource the work, so you don’t know who is actually doing the modifications or how much they’re marking up the price.
When you modify a shipping container for your business, you won’t have to worry about expensive, lengthy and complicated construction.
We have modified thousands of containers nationwide and internationally for more than 25 years for NASA, US Navy, GCP Applied Technologies, Helix and Sundt to name a few. And rent containers to Amazon, Walmart and many of other nationally recognized brands.
Our extensive staff makes it possible to custom build multiple projects simultaneously and our 90,000 sq ft indoor fabrication facility prevents contaminants from interfering with fabrication, which delivers better quality and precision.


Building additions to your home can be very expensive and requires going through the hassle of securing permits and waiting for construction. You can save money, time and stress by modifying a shipping container instead. Whether you need additional space for a home gym, recreation or storage, we can convert steel containers into anything you can imagine. Our custom container gyms, she-sheds, garages and more give you the extra space you need without the hassle, cost and wait that comes with home renovation.

Renting shipping containers for temporary storage, either when moving or dealing with restoration from a fire or flood, provides a secure, convenient way to keep your belongings close for accessing them whenever you need to. Plus, renting mobile storage containers for moving costs less than traditional movers and allows you to take your time packing, reducing the stress that comes from moving. You can also rent portable offices for your home to make working remotely distraction-free.


With an extensive in-house staff and 90,000 sq ft container modification facility, we’re able to deliver consistently high quality and work on multiple projects simultaneously for a fast turnaround.

Other companies don’t have the facility, staff or resources to modify shipping containers and will outsource the work to various shops who may not have the special experience or tools needed to modify the right way.

You can rest assured knowing your custom container is safe in our hands. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications through every step of the process.

Renting a moving container from us makes your move much less stressful because you won’t have to rush to pack your whole house into a moving truck in one day. Instead, you can take your time packing over the course of a month.

Our ISO shipping containers are weatherproof and come with vault-like security, so you don’t have to worry about theft or damage to your belongings. You won’t get that level of security from U-Haul or other moving truck companies.

Renting a storage container at your home keeps your belongings close and gives you convenient 24/7 access, so you’re always able to retrieve the contents of your container when you need to.

We know move in and move out dates don’t always line up. We can store your packed rental container at our secure facility until your new home is ready.

With our mobile storage containers for rent in Denver, CO, you can save up to 40% when compared to full-service long-distance movers, while gaining more flexibility in your schedule.


We know your needs may change suddenly. With our extensive inventory and variety of sizes of portable offices and shipping containers to rent, buy or modify in Denver, CO, we provide fast service and the best value possible so it’s easy for you to get whatever you need when you need it.

Renting storage containers and portable offices from us gives you more flexibility when it comes to your schedule and options. If you don’t have enough space at your current location or simply would prefer offsite storage, you can keep your rental storage and office containers at your location or ours – whichever is most convenient for you. You also get more options to choose from when it comes to size and features, like portable offices with divided rooms for private meetings or office/storage combos for storage and office space in one container. All while costing a fraction of the price of a pod or self-storage facility.

You can also buy new or used freight containers from us and choose from a variety of add-ons, including lights, electricity, doors and windows. Or fully customize a shipping container to save time, money and energy by skipping the expensive, lengthy process of constructing building additions. We can modify a Conex box into whatever you can imagine for any use you need, from construction tool cribs to office buildings, monitoring stations, mobile communication towers and much more. The possibilities are endless.


You’ll never face hidden fees or surprises with us. We give you transparent billing up front at the best prices.

With us, you get a reliable, dedicated point of contact, who keeps you updated every step of the way. You can rest assured knowing you’ll always get what you need, when you need it.

No other company has the breadth and depth of staff and experience that we do when it comes to modifying shipping containers. Our certified welders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and painters have more than 500 years of combined experience in fabricating custom steel containers.

We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don’t have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don’t have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don’t know who’s actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.


Whether you’re in need of a storage container for your commercial business, a portable office for your construction site, or a moving container for your home, our process is simple and straightforward.

What You Should Know:

SonderMind Inc., a Denver, CO-based provider in improving mental health clinical outcomes and making behavioral health more accessible to all Americans, today announced it has raised $150M in Series C financing co-led by new investors Drive Capital and Premji Invest, with participation from General Catalyst, Partners Group, Smash Ventures, Kickstart, and F-Prime Capital.

– For mental health providers, SonderMind enables clinicians to thrive in a private-practice setting, while having the tools to deliver world-class care for their clients. SonderMind therapists enjoy being part of the premier community of providers who are empowered to focus on high-quality clinical outcomes, while the SonderMind solution takes care of the rest: matching clients who are a clinical fit, payments, telehealth, full technology suite, clinical assessments and a supportive team behind all of it.

– This funding will accelerate the company’s expansion into all fifty states as it continues to build the highest-quality platform for clinical care in the nation. The new capital infusion will also further SonderMind’s commitment to providing affordable and accessible mental healthcare that is grounded in data-driven results.

What You Should Know:

Amwell®, a telehealth leader, today announced that it has signed definitive agreements to acquire SilverCloud Health, a leading digital mental health platform, and Conversa Health, a leader in automated virtual healthcare.

– By adding the technology of these two companies to its virtual care platform, Amwell is greatly enhancing the differentiated value it can bring to current and future clients. Each company brings unique, proven capabilities that will position Amwell to materially advance the reach and impact of care teams on patients’ lives through the use of interactive tools that strengthen the cohesion between physical and virtual care.

SilverCloud Health Background

SilverCloud Health delivers a range of digital cognitive behavioral health programs that are evidence-based and clinically validated. These programs have shown results equivalent to face-to-face care for the 1 in 5 people with a diagnosable mental health condition and have helped over 65% of patient, member, and employee users to experience significant decreases in depression and anxiety symptoms. Used globally by more than 300 organizations including Kaiser-Permanente, Optum, Providence Health and over 80 percent of the U.K.’s National Health Service mental health services, Amwell will leverage SilverCloud Health’s award-winning platform and more than 17 years of clinical research to enrich its own behavioral health offerings, as well as to develop new digital specialty care programs.

Conversa Health Background

Conversa Health helps leading healthcare organizations including Northwell Health, UCSF Health, UNC Health, University Hospitals and Prisma Health to remotely manage and engage patients by delivering configurable, automated text-based conversations to support a wide range of clinical needs – from pre-admission patient education and preparedness to post-acute monitoring, to chronic care management and more. The core technology of Conversa Health extends health system care teams by using automated patient interactions to ensure patients stay on track before and after live or virtual visits.

Amwell will leverage Conversa Health’s proprietary patient profiling and health signals engine and library of evidence-based digital pathways to advance initiatives aimed at longitudinal care, clinical quality, and population health. Using automated patient outreach and engagement tools alongside care management teams, Amwell clients will benefit from improved care coordination, cost management, patient experience and outcomes.

Acquisition Impact for Amwell

In addition to the above, the Conversa Health and SilverCloud Health acquisitions will help Amwell realize value in a number of key ways:

– Advanced Platform Offerings: The combined company will seek to pioneer new digital care workflows and programs to improve patient engagement and care team reach, as well as to advance care delivery outcomes. Initial efforts will focus on virtual care automation and patient companionship to advance longitudinal care, behavioral health, and other specialty and chronic care segments.

– Accelerated Growth Opportunity in New Markets: Amwell will expand its current client base to include hospital, health system, health plan and employer clients of Conversa Health and SilverCloud Health. The geographical footprint of SilverCloud Health will also help Amwell to accelerate its global growth plans, specifically within the United Kingdom and Ireland.

“We believe that future care delivery will inevitably blend in-person, virtual and digital care experiences; and as such, we are uniquely building a global platform to support such advanced, coordinated care,” said Ido Schoenberg, Chairman and Co-CEO, Amwell. “By integrating SilverCloud Health and Conversa Health into our platform we are demonstrating Amwell’s fundamental and repeatable design to continually scale digital healthcare services across the different sites of care. These acquisitions will amplify the presence and reach of care teams and reaffirm that as the needs of the healthcare marketplace evolve, so too will the Amwell platform.”

Okoye hit symbolized Atwater’s career but didn’t define it

DENVER (AP) — Steve Atwater was in his second season with the Denver Broncos in 1990 when then-public relations chief Jim Saccomano approached him a few days before their home opener against Kansas City.“Hey Steve, we want to mic you for the game Monday night,” Saccomano announced.“Against Christian Okoye?” answered an incredulous Atwater. “Why would you want to mic me up for this, of all games?”Because the super-sized safety nicknamed the “Smiling Assassin” versus th...

DENVER (AP) — Steve Atwater was in his second season with the Denver Broncos in 1990 when then-public relations chief Jim Saccomano approached him a few days before their home opener against Kansas City.

“Hey Steve, we want to mic you for the game Monday night,” Saccomano announced.

“Against Christian Okoye?” answered an incredulous Atwater. “Why would you want to mic me up for this, of all games?”

Because the super-sized safety nicknamed the “Smiling Assassin” versus the All-Pro 260-pound running back known as the “Nigerian Nightmare” was about as good as it gets.

“I definitely was hesitant,” Atwater recounted recently as he reflected on a career that has landed him in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “I wasn’t just like, ‘Yeah, put it on me! I’m confident I’m going to go out there and make something happen!’”

The folks at NFL Films are forever grateful that Atwater relented and agreed to wear the microphone that night.

When Okoye took a handoff from Steve DeBerg and stepped into the hole, the running back was met by the fierce free safety who moved like a cornerback, hit like a linebacker and, at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, was built like today’s edge rushers.


“We could hear the hit from the sideline,” John Elway marveled.

So could everybody at home.

Okoye recoiled.

“Yeah, you tried, baby!” Atwater bellowed as he hovered over Okoye.

“He’ll be remembered for that hit the rest of his career,” a young Broncos offensive assistant named Mike Shanahan offered after Denver’s 24-23 victory that night.

“I was just fortunate to come out on the right side of that one,” Atwater said all these years later, “because that guy had trucked so many people and I’m lucky I wasn’t one of them.”

The seminal stop is being saluted anew as Atwater prepares for his induction into Canton on Aug. 7 with the rest of the class of 2020, a ceremony that was delayed a year because of the pandemic.

“It couldn’t happen to a better guy,” Elway said. “He had such a great career and was a guy that changed that position because of his size and his ability to move around.” While intimidation “is no longer as big a part of the game as it used to be,” Elway added, “he was an intimidating guy that did a great job.”

“I just loved physical football,” said Atwater, who was born in Chicago, raised in St. Louis and starred at the University of Arkansas after moving from quarterback to safety as a freshman so he could see the field sooner.

Atwater and Okoye have only spoken briefly about the iconic play that links their careers. A few years ago Okoye asked Atwater to send him a video for a roast in Okoye’s honor.

“I was glad he called because we got the chance to chop it up a little bit,” Atwater said. “And anybody who’s met Christian Okoye knows he’s a heck of a guy. And on the football field things happen at different times and, hey, I’ve gotten run over by different guys, he’s gotten hit by other guys, too. So, it’s not out of the norm for this to happen.

“Fortunately, on that particularly play I happened to come out on the winning side of it,” added Atwater, who, like Okoye, became known as much for his congenial manner as for his ferocious play.

While that iconic hit on Okoye might symbolize Atwater’s spectacular football career, it certainly doesn’t define it.

“He had a lot of great moments,” said Atwater’s teammate and mentor Dennis Smith. “He was an impact player. He had a big impact on wins and losses. Even if it was just his presence. Teams were so afraid of him that they had to game plan ways to just avoid him. He was so big and could move and cover a lot of ground. He just had a lot of skills that a kid his size doesn’t usually have.”

What elevated Atwater to stardom, Smith said, “was the way he played in Super Bowls.”

Atwater, who now works as a fan development manager for the Broncos marketing department, was so instrumental in Denver’s first world championship that Shanahan suggested he deserved Super Bowl 32 co-MVP honors with Terrell Davis, who scored three touchdowns that day.

While fellow Hall of Famers Elway, Davis, Shannon Sharpe and Gary Zimmerman were starring on offense in Denver’s 31-24 win over the heavily favored Packers, Atwater spearheaded Denver’s dizzying defense that badgered Brett Favre with six tackles, a strip sack that turned into a tone-setting takeaway, and two pass breakups.

“Steve made big plays throughout the game,” Shanahan said.

“Well, I like physical football,” explained Atwater, who played in Denver from 1989-98, capping his time with the Broncos with a seven-tackle performance in the Broncos’ 34-19 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 33.

He played one final season with the Jets, then signed a ceremonial one-day contract in Denver to retire a Bronco.

A member of the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s, Atwater was an eight-time Pro Bowler whose accolades included three AFC championships, two Super Bowl titles and one of the most memorable hits in NFL history.

“He brought such a physical presence to our football team,” Shanahan said. “When he hit you, you were going backward.”

Like Okoye.

Tortilla King Announces Investment by Flagship Food Group

MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. & DENVER–Tortilla King announced that Denver-based ...

MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. & DENVER–Tortilla King announced that Denver-based Flagship Food Group, LLC (Flagship), owner of 505 Southwestern and La Tortilla Factory, has agreed to make an investment into Tortilla King to support its future growth and expansion strategy. Flagship will become the majority owner in the company while current local management remains in place and Juan Guardiola remains a shareholder.

With the acquisition, Flagship solidifies its place as one of the leading and largest privately held food companies in the country focusing on Hispanic brands with an emphasis on premium products.

“I’ve known the team at Flagship for many years, and we’ve been a supplier and partner of theirs across several of their product portfolios. Coming together as one company made sense for them, for me, and for our valued employees and customers,” said Juan Guardiola, co-founder of Tortilla King. Guardiola will remain in his role as President of Tortilla King.

Majority owned by CREO Capital Partners, Flagship is a diversified food company that sells a wide range of food products and services under the 505 Southwestern, La Tortilla Factory, Lilly B’s, Hatch Kitchen, TJ Farms and other brands. Most of Flagship’s brands are rapidly expanding, having experienced significant growth and expanded national distribution in recent years. 505 Southwestern, crafted with New Mexico green chiles and made in Albuquerque, is the country’s largest jarred green chile brand.

“We are building a world-class, scaled, diversified food company. The Hispanic foods category has been our principal focus for nearly a decade, and the addition of Tortilla King expands both our capabilities and geographic footprint,” said Rob Holland, founder of CREO Capital Partners and its managing partner. Holland helped lead the firm’s acquisition of 505 Southwestern over a decade ago and has driven the brand’s growth by over 15-fold during CREO’s ownership.

Based in Moundridge, Kansas, outside of Wichita, Tortilla King sells premium tortillas and tortilla chips under its Mama Lupe’s brand. In addition, it serves as a valued manufacturing partner to other food companies and food retailers across the county. The company operates manufacturing and distribution facilities across the Midwest. An innovator in the category, the company has developed low carb, net zero carb, and gluten free tortilla offerings for its customers focused on health and wellness.

“Simply put, we are here to support growth,” said Forrest Kragten, a principal at CREO. “As part of the transaction, we approved and supported a significant expansion of the Tortilla King operation in Kansas. We’re excited to bring more volume and production to this area and to this outstanding team.”

Earlier this year, Flagship announced the acquisition of La Tortilla Factory, a Santa Rosa, California-based maker of premium tortillas and Hispanic food products. Flagship says that the two companies are complementary and position Flagship as one of the top-ten branded tortilla companies in the country. Operations, brands, and management of each company will remain independent and fully intact.

“This is an exciting day for Flagship and its investment in the Hispanic food space,” said Jeff Ahlers, CEO of Flagship-owned La Tortilla Factory. “We proudly welcome Juan and Tortilla King into our family.”

The transaction closed in mid-July. Terms of the transaction are confidential.

For a limited time, service available to residents in and around Denver with more than 10 gallons of paint

PaintCare has extended its direct pickup service to households with more than 10 gallons of leftover paint in Arapahoe, Adams, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties. For a limited time, PaintCare will pick up leftover paint, stain, and varnish from homes to be recycled. There is no charge for the pickup service; the cost is covered by the PaintCare fee on sales of new paint. Since January, the service has been available in the Colorado Springs area and in El Paso and Teller Counties.

"PaintCare has extended its pickup service to residents in six counties around the Denver Front Range for a limited time to make recycling larger amounts of paint even more convenient," said Kevin Lynch, PaintCare Colorado program manager. "With home improvement projects up, we see a pent-up need for responsible paint disposal options. We have seen great success with the program around Colorado Springs and expect it will work well in the Denver area, as well."

Products covered by the PaintCare program and accepted for pickup are defined as interior and exterior architectural coatings sold in containers of five gallons or smaller, including:

Accepted paint products must be in a sealed, original container with the original manufacturer label. PaintCare does not accept aerosol products (spray cans), industrial maintenance (IM), original equipment manufacturer (OEM), or specialty coatings. Visit for additional information.

Residents interested in paint pickup should call (720) 854-8722 to see if they qualify and submit a service request.

Households with less than 10 gallons of paint for disposal are encouraged to use PaintCare\'s site locator tool to find a nearby drop-off site. There are currently more than 60 sites located around the Denver area for paint to be dropped off for recycling.
